Poster of the InMusic Festival

InMusic Festival 2009, a music festival from August 7th-9th organized by the InMusic Magazine.



Festival Grounds: The Zhangbei Grasslands are located 220km outside of Beijing, near Zhangjiakou, Hebei, and the Inner Mongolian border. Though it may be hard to imagine, this 250-acre uninterrupted prairie, where clear blue skies fill with millions of stars at night, is just a two-hour drive (or three-hour train ride) from Beijing.

For the duration of the festival (Aug 7-9), the weather is predicted to reach highs of 27 C and lows of 14 C.

Three stages will host the 60-plus bands performing at the InMusic Festival (see “Performance Schedule” for a full line-up). The festival grounds will be open to the public each day starting at 1pm, except August 7, when the grounds open at 2pm. (The camp grounds will remain open all day.)

Other Activities

With its close proximity to Inner Mongolia, as well as playing a prominent role during the Yuan Dynasty, it’s not surprising that horses are an important feature of these grasslands. So during the festival, you’ll have a chance to go horseback riding, in addition to kite-flying, film showings, horoscope readings, a marketplace, and 5-a-side football (register your team now or form one at the festival grounds – plenty of bands have already signed up!).

Food & Drink

Catering to palates of all types, there will be a number of different foods available at the festival grounds – pizza, hamburgers, BBQ, lamb kabobs (a local specialty), Chinese-style fast food and more. In addition, alcoholic offerings will include beer, Bacardi and red wine.



RMB 80 (one day)

RMB 135 (two days)

RMB 180 (three days)
